Just bought one of these beauties. I had been looking for one for a long time.
Any body else have one? I only know of one other person with one.

Yes, I do. Also have the 86 Seaver with the same defect. Will post both later. I have seen both on eBay from time to time

Awesome Al, I have never seen the Seaver. Do you remember what the Clemens errors sold for? I paid $20 for the one I got.

I got them a long time ago, but did not pay much for either

So I'm guessing that on the uncut sheets for '86 that Seaver was upside down directly above Clemens and that this is an "error" similar to the '90 Topps Frank Thomas NNOF error.

Good point Chris. We need someone with an uncut sheet

There is six card uncut Topps 1986 panel on ebid and the Clemons and Seaver are together upside down

Great find. Looks like there should be some Terry Puhl cards with some blue on the upper left side. Now I need to add that to my list.:D

Great job investigating guys! Very interesting! I wonder who will be the first to find a Terry Puhl variation and post it on this thread. I would imagine there are lots of guys with a ton of '86 common boxes to go through!
